Professional title:

Independent software developer, writer, and teacher

What do you do?

I help programmers explore the kinds of questions that make their work more meaningful.


I am generally unhappy with the state of the tech education world. I want to encourage software developers to adopt a more human-centric focus. The more skilled someone is, the more opportunity they'll have to make better choices in life.

What should we read?

“Thinking, Fast and Slow”
